By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try. The world is beyond the winning. When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.~ Lao Tzu

I strive to strike a balance between the me who is impatient, uncombed, unsettling, and the more presentable me who plays well with others. If I lean too far toward the former, I can get slovenly and depressed. If I go overboard with trying to fit in and be popular, I rebel on a deeply visceral level, and overdo it in one way or another.

I still feel like the engine hasn’t caught yet – I periodically travel from one of these versions of me to another. I would love to figure out how to accept both aspects of me and feel more comfortable in my own skin.
